What is wrongful termination?
Wrongful termination may seem to be an easy category to interpret, but there are certain requirements of a case that need to be present in order for a case to be considered wrongful termination.
Wrongful termination occurs when the reason that a person is fired is illegal. A person can be fired or quit a job for any reason at any time, it only becomes illegal when the reason that they are being let go it not legal.
Texas has the “at-will” doctrine that puts limits on how a person can file these lawsuits. In order to file a successful wrongful termination suit, there has to be some type of grounds including breach of contract, retaliation, discrimination, breach of good faith, and the violation of public policy.
